Nokia Lumia 1520 phablet and Sirius tablet may launch on Oct. 22, press invites sent

Nokia has sent out press invites for its event on Oct. 22, where the company is expected to launch the rumored Lumia 1520 phablet and the Sirius tablet.

Rumors of Nokia's Windows RT tablet (Sirius) and the Lumia 1520 have been rampant in the last few weeks. Many hardware specifications and leaked images of the upcoming Nokia devices have emerged on a regular basis. Now it seems that the devices will make their debut soon.

"At Nokia, we never stop innovating. More to share on October 22," per the Nokia press invite tweet.

The tweet is followed by an image, which shows a person skiing in the desert. The image also lists a number of tags such as #blazing, #stories and #innovationreinvented.

Some previous reports suggested that Nokia is holding an event from Sept. 26 to Sept. 27, where the company would unveil its new devices. However, a recent report claimed that the September event has been canceled.

"The Lumia 1520 along with Nokia's tablet were expected to be revealed later this month in New York City, but Windows Phone Central has heard this event was cancelled. It would make sense for Nokia to announce the Lumia 1520 in late October with a two week lead before an actual release. That is how the Lumia 1020 and Lumia 925 were recently handled too,"reported WPCentral.

Some recent reports suggest that the Nokia Lumia 1520 will head to U.S. carrier AT&T on Nov. 8 and will be available in various color options.

Previous rumors also suggested that the Lumia 1520 and the Sirius will be exclusive to AT&T in the U.S. However, an image of the Nokia tablet has leaked with Verizon branding and the carrier's version of the Lumia 1520 has also been spotted at the FCC, which suggests that the devices will be available via other carriers as well.

So far, the 4.7-inch Lumia 625 is the biggest Windows Phone 8 (WP8) handset around. The 6-inch Lumia 1520 will be the first ever WP8 phablet and customers will be eagerly waiting to get their hands on the handset as soon as possible. The Lumia 1520 is expected to have a price tag of $699 outright. 

Oct. 22 is more than one month away and more rumors may emerge in the meantime, giving us additional details of the Lumia 1520 and the Sirius tablet before the official launch.
